Performing a Peer Review

Observe the following general strategies in reviewing a colleague's document.

  1. Start by praising what the document does well.
  2. Spend much of your time responding to the author's specific requests.
  3. Avoid performing an editorial review, unless asked to by the author. Do not focus on spelling and mechanics. Instead, focus on helping the author revise organization and content.
  4. Do not just criticize. Make suggestions on how to solve the problems you notice in the document.
